When I looked into the list generated by the first iteration I had
packages such as bnlearn or lmeSplines or Daim.
bnlearn has:
  Depends: R (≥ 2.8.0), utils 
  Suggests: snow, graph, Rgraphviz (≥ 1.20.3), lattice
so regarding the 'depends' it is a valid result, but R2spec uses both
'depends' and 'suggests' since we run R CMD CHECK in all packages.
Therefore the spec file as for 'Requires' all these packages and
therefore do not build for missing dependencies.
Same thing for Daim for example.

Do you see what I meant ?
